Uniting friends with Woodbine

Deborah Williams

Over the course of a 12 week project, 'Uniting Friends' and 'Woodbine' will be asked to share some of their memories of past friendships and the emergence of new relationships. Who exactly are our friends? We will think about the qualities we look for in our friendships. How did friendships become established and how are they maintained. In the past were friendships 'manufactured'? Is it any different now?

This presentation will be the culmination of all the issues and themes which emerge throughout these workshops. It will be shown as a multi media presentation incorporating, film, oral recordings, photos, drawings and text.
